Unspoken Words

Credit: unknown
If you have nothing good to say, maybe it is best to be silent....
watch the video

The heart often speaks in unspoken words, these emotions I trust to the moon...

Please be quiet

and listen to the words

I can not say out loud....

Feel the emotions which I hide

inside my numbed heart

A wall of protection...

Leave your opinions

to your perfect self

As I will never be perfection...

Any words I had are

buried now inside

My shattered heart....

Time is slowly covering

the scars of bitterness

Which fell from your lips...

Each day I return

breathing in grace

Redemption bestowed...

I have been haunted

by things you will never fathom

Compassion beyond your understanding...

So for now please

be silent to this truth

A witness to this weeping...

I am gazing at this blue moon

Watching over me as a lover should

Not turning away when I need it most...

Standing, peering into my bleeding heart

Names from my past in the chambers

Forever etched in love and forgiveness....

I don't ask for your acceptance

to be who and what I am

I'd rather walk this path alone...

When you asked of me to help

someone close to you, I gave this

Now you throw this back into my face....

As if I did something wrong

offering compassion and caring

Simple human understanding...

So I shelter my love

within myself with truth

Howling to the moon, which knows my heart....
